John F. Fink

John F. Fink, 78, of Lake Zurich, passed away peacefully on March 13, 2024. He was born on June 15, 1945 in Chicago, Illinois to the late Forrest and Mildred Fink.

John was a glassblower by trade and found solace and joy in the simplicity of life, embracing the tranquility of the forests and the serenity of the waters. His love for hunting and fishing wasn't just a pastime; it was a way of life, a sacred communion with nature that defined him.  In his quiet demeanor and steadfast devotion to his passions, John taught those around him the beauty of simplicity and the importance of finding joy in life's simple pleasures. His absence leaves a void in the hearts of all who knew him, but his spirit will live on in the rustle of leaves, the whisper of the wind, and the gentle ripple of the water.

John is survived by his brother, William (Charlotte) Fink; his nieces, Gail (Aaron) Benson, and Karen (Ron) Kasperek, great nieces Emma Benson, Courtney and Caitlin Kasperek, great nephew, Alex Benson and several close friends.
